Assassin's Creed 3 screenshots leak

Ubisoft had just revealed the official cover art for Assassin's Creed 3 yesterday, and now five more images purported to be screenshots of the game have surfaced on Reddit via imgur. There's no way to verify the authenticity of these images, but they look very convincing and provide more hints at what elements of gameplay to expect.

This latest iteration of Assassin's Creed is set during the American Revolution, rumors of which initially stirred concerns that the new game would lack its trademark scaling of city landmarks. However, from the images we're seeing, the dense forests of colonial America can provide its own unique gameplay experience.

Our protagonist, the hooded assassin with his tomahawk, bow, and hatchet knife, among other weaponry, is shown sneaking around the woods, hunting an elk, and entering a colonial settlement. He's also seen charging with tomahawk in hand behind a man he's about to clobber. More details of the game will come direct from Ubisoft on Monday, March 5.
